The great strength of G4 was its mythic core. It portrayed a pre-electrical world inhabited by three races reflecting the tripartite division of Neolithic society -- peasants, warriors, and magic-working priests -- ruled over by twin goddesses of the Sun and the Moon, of Light and Darkness, in opposition to the forces of primordial Chaos. You can't get much more mythic than that.
All this mythos was abraded, dimmed and obscured as the series wore on. New alicorns were added, the Lord of Chaos became a court jester, and the Two Sisters were humanized and degraded until they lost their godlike auras and became two bickering old biddies looking for a retirement community.
I don't see how G5 can improve on the archetypal simplicity of Faust's original show bible. I'm afraid that G5 will go in either a sitcom-like direction -- teenyboppers and their adolescent problems -- or an anime-like direction with wizards, giants, death rays, and explosions. There was already too much of the latter in G4.
